 Best known for its taverns, like the Brothers of Justice, the Fiery Gourd near Hearthfire Tower, and the Strawberry Punch, King's Hill benefits from trade between [[campaigns:​haven:​thanes_lading|Thane'​s Landing]] to the south and [[campaigns:​haven:​blackhill|Blackhill]] to the north. It's home to "The King's Knights"​ -- more ceremonial than martial these days -- who are famously touchy about their honor. Best known for its taverns, like the Brothers of Justice, the Fiery Gourd near Hearthfire Tower, and the Strawberry Punch, King's Hill benefits from trade between [[campaigns:​haven:​thanes_lading|Thane'​s Landing]] to the south and [[campaigns:​haven:​blackhill|Blackhill]] to the north.

 **Hearthfire Tower** was founded many years ago by a circle of wizards who were deeply interested in dragons. The tallest building in King's Hill, some say that actual dragon bones were used in its foundations. The wizards'​ plot to create more dragons went badly awry when they were betrayed by the very dragons with whom they were allied, and the eggs they had created were lost. Today, Hearthfire Tower is primarily a school for children, and arguably the best one outside of the capital, though its adult teachers also perform a fair amount of magical research. **Hearthfire Tower** was founded many years ago by a circle of wizards who were deeply interested in dragons.
